Orange is the true patrician's choice of handle color when it comes to knives.
I like serrations on a knife i don't care about with shit steel, like my gerber mini paraframe, i love the serrations on it since i don't really sharpen it that much and it's my go to knife since i don't like carrying a big bulky knife in my chainsaw pants.
I'm not a fan of serrations even on cheap knives. The only time I'd really want a serrated knife would be to cut through a seat belt or something like that but they make hook knives for that purpose that are better at it.

Okay maybe I'll stick with this pit then
Best thing to do with avocado pits is to do more than one, like three or four.
If all start to root, you could sell/gift the rest.

Wool Blankets.

Anybody like wool blankets here? Any advice on what brands of blankets are best? I'm interested in getting an HBC blanket because I'll just sell a knife or two from my collection to cover most of the cost.

I love me my wool blanket. I'm not a pussy who doesn't know how to build a proper white man fire so I don't depend on a sleeping bag for warmth. My wool blanket right now spreads out the heat wonderfully so I don't get hot spots that are inevitable in windy -30C when the warmed air instantly cuts off from super hot to witch-tit cold on an invisible line.

We also get leather from animals, tanning / processing leather is a time consuming process that often leaves toxic waste behind that must be dealt with. Depending on the brand / quality, some leather goods can be had for fairly low prices as well. I know it's apples vs oranges but it seems like should be a bit cheaper in comparison. Then again, every cow and pig that is slaughtered produces a green hide that sells for next to nothing so maybe it has something to do with that.
Not to mention that there a different grades of wool, the length and softness also needs to be taken into account.

And I've not heard much of a conglomeration of different wools (sheep, llama, alpaca).

I think it's Australia that has the wool market in it's control so that's another reason to hate Australia.
I'm not sure wether blanket wool is downproof. Also, two thick blankets AND down in between (which you'd need to quilt in a good way) is way too thick.
You could try and make a sleeping bag (I bet there are sewing patterns somewhere) from thin wool and synthetic insulation; neither are very expensive.

The kind of sheep that are easy to raise are actually not the merino kind that gives crazy soft wool. European wool for example is mostly used for carpets and technical insulation, because it is too rough for the delicate skin of modern people.
The thing I'm most angry about is that there is no wool clothing in the US besides socks that I can find. I usually have to look on European sites but I'm not paying +20 dollars for shipping.

Rape whistle?
Me and my cousin saw one while camping/ hiking and pulled out a knife and machete and it just ran away. I guess it knew who it was fucking with.
Not my first choice of meat, as it seems a little greasy and a bit gamey. However, it is very eatable.

As far as black bear attacks on humans. Most of those bear's were eight sick or very old. It is the very rare blackie that will just attack a human for food. Getting between a sow and her cubs puts you in the most danger.

Black bears can climb. It doesn't matter how fast you climb, as you can only go so far. Bear is not going to climb after you, but if it did, you wouldn't get away.
I'm a lot more likely to be seriously injured or killed in a car or boating accident than a bear attack. Hell, I'm more likely to be maimed while feeding or tending to my friend's cows or horses while he's out of town than a stray black bear.... You gotta put things into perspective. I am pretty worried about picking up a bad case of the Lyme someday though, I know a couple of people who are living with chronic Lyme Disease and it seems terrible.

Just chilly enough for toe socks here in NY. Hello /out/!
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
One of the lucky few I guess. I don't think I could walk around barefoot on anything cold
That being said, what do you think of the socks?
i don't like socks they are a hygiene feature like underwear. you know because it would be very difficult to wash shoes and boots out. otherwise i wouldn't use them.

and i would especially not use fingered socks wtf? the color scheme is also appalling.
If you cycle 3 or 4 pairs of shoes then you can not wear socks and not have to worry about the smell. I've discovered that 2 or 3 days is good enough to air them out.
This is actual autism. Who the fuck cares? Why did you think that people in the Internet want to hear you brag about your alleged superhuman feet?

As a group
Sure cotton if it tickles your nuts fancy
Given that it's a whole year and depending on where i would land, the cotton clothing might be used just as a firestarter or sieve.
The point that i'd suddenly be just in the middle of the food chain doesn't make the choice easier.
- proper set of clothing for whereever i'm going to land (This might already burn all of it)
- knife
- hatchet
- tarp
- sleeping bag and pad
- meds
And what off your two buddies and make a leaf shelter? Hope to catch food the first day?
Oh you're that guy.
Why are you that guy?
Is that $300 total or $300 each?

Why do hippies get so defensive when you bring up their drug habits?

99% of hippies are junkies and crackheads. I've been around enough hippies and been to gatherings and shit to know. At first you can convince yourself it's just an aberration but over time patterns emerge and the magic wears off, you begin to see the reality of the situation.
>Walk down the street in any city you find needles. That shit is all around you all the time.
No, it's really not. How normalized hard drugs have become to you says quite a lot to be honest.
You just really havent anon. I wonder why you have to come on 4chins and lie, probably what you do irl too desu senpai. Get a grip.

Yes, it really is. Once again, fuck yourself. World has no place for dumb faggots who wont learn.
Did your feelings get hurt?

How dare someone have more experience than you and reveal the truth lol.

Also, class, notice how hippies always try to bring in normies to their "sphere of influence".... This isn't an accident, they now if left to themselves they're little more than crackhead vagrants, they need to bring others in to try and keep an air of "normalcy", if even only to themselves, to help convince themselves they're not just junkies but somehow something more, because they can still connect with and interact socially with normal people.

I've seen it time and again. Also hippies (who always think of themselves as kids, and refer to each other as such) just acting like disgusting junkie vagrants, but claim they're "freaking the squares". No, you're not. Maybe if you were still 15 acting outlandishly would be somewhat okay, but as an adult... It's just inappropriate and weird, and the "squares" are not "freaked" they simply find you disgusting and objectionable and would rather not be associated with your sort, but are to polite to simply tell you to fuck off.

Plus I'd be amazed to find anyone who has associated as a hippy for more than 5 years that's not addicted to whatever drugs they can lay their hands on and be riddled with hep c and all manner of other venereal disease.

Truly, the common American hippy is a disgusting creature.

Preach, brother.

No its a Belted Kingfisher. The beak of the blue jay is much shorter and the crest not as pronounced.

How much cold can the human body handle?

Pic related, Victor was a feral child found when he was 12

>Shortly after Victor was found, a local abbot and biology professor,Pierre Joseph Bonnaterre, examined him. He removed the boy's clothing and led him outside into the snow, where, far from being upset, Victor began to frolic about in the nude, showing Bonnaterre that he was clearly accustomed to exposure and cold

My feet would freeze if I was running barefoot in the snow. Am I just weak from spending too much time inside?

I wear shorts and a hoodie when I'm out and about doing errands with the car or working outside when it's -35c. When I'm biking or hiking I don't put on pants till until around -20c. You get used to it after a while, gotta build dat brown fat. I wouldn't recommend shorts in winter unless you got good circulation around your knees.
I never heard of that guy. I've been thinking about trying to swim around in a nearby river even though its below freezing. I'll probably use my wetsuit first then work my way down to a swimsuit
Sauce on shorts?

I really need to get out fishin this weekend.

Still waiting for help with the beginner guides on the Pastebin. I put a little saltwater one in there, but I want to do a river one possibly. Skid typed up a saltwater guide so enjoy the autism and CAbaymang just a trout one.

Thinking about picking up a new hobby? Want to get a memecaster? Haven't mastered the Palomar knot? Click here!

Could be true. Fish def hang on to soft baits (especially scented stuff like Gulp) much longer than hard baits. I can be fishing a 4" Rapala and 4" Gulp minnow the exact same way and a fish will hit the Rapala sometimes and spit it out before you can set the hook while there is a good chance the same fish will hit the tail of the Gulp and won't get hooked initially until they hit again and try to swallow the whole thing.
Also this is moreso true with panfish like bluegill because of how they hit prey. Bass will swallow the whole bait on the first strike so they get hooked before they can spit out the hard baits. Bluegill like to nip at the end of a bait and take off with it before they try to swallow it. So if you are using a little inline spinner or crank, they could nip at the side of the lure instead of the hook and they will notice it is hard plastic or metal and spir it out right away. If the same thing happens with a soft bait that is salty and scented, they will hang onto it and try to eat the whole thing a second later and you have a better chance of setting the hook and catching them.
4 or 5 days of decent weather up north

im quitting my job and fishing the rest of the week ill figure out my life afterwards
yea whole week is above 40F, it's pretty much all I ask for. Feel bad for the icefags in my state however, every cold streak is short and gets ruined by warm weather so only a few lakes are frozen.
That's about what I want to do. Or at least take a bunch of personal days. The weather has been so damn nice lately.

>tfw just watched nig walk out the gas station with two 18pks of Corona
Dude gets in the back seat of Lincoln SUV, Cuban chick working there is pounding on the window of the car and they are getting the plates and dude just drives off. Fucking nigs. And they complain about racism and people treating them like shit.
